Fifth hosts fourth here in the race for the final Champions League spot. Both teams won at the weekend having drawn two in a row prior to that and there looks unlikely to be much between the teams
The Gunners have already suffered one thrashing at the hands of Klopp’s side this season, losing 4-0 at Anfield back in August, and they’ve conceded 14 times in their last four meetings but they scored three times themselves in a couple of those so it should be an entertaining affair. In fact seven of the last eight matches between these two have had at least four goals and given Liverpool’s nine road trips this season have averaged 4.56 goals per game we’ll back Over 3.5 Goals.
The Gunners have won 13 of their last 14 home matches but the defence was guilty of several mistakes in their recent defeat against Man Utd despite controlling the game. They may well dominate possession again but Liverpool are potentially even more ruthless on the break. Arsenal have gone W3-D4-L8 against the rest of the Big Six since the start of last season as their defence has often looked exposed and while their record is better at home (W3-D2-L2) this looks a bad match-up. The Reds have played 10 away matches against the Big Six under Klopp with a record of W4-D4-L2. A high scoring draw is a fair shout in what could be a match that sees several shifts in momentum but we just prefer Liverpool on the Draw No Bet.
Both teams have scored in eight of those 10 Liverpool trips to the Big Six and we suspect they’ll concede at some point even if they win. The Gunners have lost nine home matches since 2013/14 but they scored in six of those, including a 4-3 loss to Liverpool at the start of last season.
